According to the forum guidelines it's okay to ask questions about verses in the KJV. So, in Genesis 6:4, the King James uses the word "giants", whereas contemporary Bibles leave that word untranslated as "nephilim". I've been trying to find out why that is. According to many websites the word "nephilim" means "the fallen", or something like that. That seems a bit different from the word "giants". Obviously, as someone who is KJVO, I believe the KJV is correct, but I haven't yet found anything explaining why the King James translators translated that word "giants" and why contemporary translators think it means something else. Can someone please shed some light on this issue? Thank you. :D

Easy, God's inspired preserved word is giant; KJB translators followed the Holy Spirit's leading instead of the many websites.
Bottom line, whom do we believe?

have you studied "Giants" in the Bible? There is a satanic connection to the Antichrist. The Devil likes to cover his tracks in the new "bible" perversions.

“Giants” or “Nephilim” in Genesis 6:4?


"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." (Genesis 6:4, KJV)
The Septuagint translates "נפלים" as “γίγαντες (giants).” The Five Books of Moses (Schocken Bible) by Everett Fox translates the word as “giants.” The footnotes of the ESV and NRSV indicate that the Nephilim were giants. Josephus also describes the Nephilim as men of “great strength” whose acts resembled those of the Grecian “giants” (Antiquities of the Jews, 3:1). The Nephilim appear again in Number 13:33, and they are noted for their giant size. The apocryphal Book of Enoch also describes these beings as giants (7:3). "Nephilim" is a transliteration, whereas "giants" is the correct translation.

Numbers 13:33
And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.







Same word, same translation!

I learned something, I never paid attention to the <>. I would sometimes just copy and paste into a plain text editor before copying and pasting here, that would seem to get rid of the formatting I didn't know how to view. Seems like it might still be easier in heavily formatted stuff.
